Lead Paint/Poisoning Defense
Cost Effective Representation In Toxic Tort Cases
In New York, it is common for many residential and commercial properties to contain lead paint that was used before it became restricted by state law and federal regulations. When individuals are exposed to lead via peeling, cracking, chipped paint or any other method of exposure, it can result in a toxic tort claim. Lead paint exposure and lead paint poisoning claims can lead to massive damage awards, so it is vital for insurance companies, businesses, property owners, manufacturers, distributors and other potentially liable parties to retain the services of experienced defense counsel when faced with lead paint litigation.
